* {{XenSyndrome}}: The entirety of chapters 4 and 5 are punishingly difficult in single player, and require ridiculous amounts of grinding in the side missions.

* HarsherInHindsight: In ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'', Revolver Ocelot was fully complacent in the Patriots S3 Plan and was implied to be involved in the threat towards Olga's child's life if Olga didn't cooperate. In ''Peace Walker'', Ocelot himself was later revealed to have been under Sunny's position when The Boss and The Sorrow had their final battle at Dolinovodno. ** Anything involving [[spoiler: Huey in light of his actions in The Phantom Pain, where he becomes less of an Otacon-clone and more of a callous monster; it makes you wonder exactly how much truth there is to Coldman's comments regarding his plagiarism and exactly ''how skilled'' Huey is, given Skull Face's team are able to complete their Metal Gear ''without him'']].

Most find her {{Moe}} persona extremely saccharine and was implied to be involved in the threat towards Olga's child's life if Olga didn't cooperate. In ''Peace Walker'', Ocelot himself was later revealed to have been under Sunny's position when The Boss and The Sorrow had their final battle at Dolinovodno. ** Anything involving more annoying or creepy than cute. [[spoiler: Huey in light of his actions in The Phantom Pain, where he Post-reveal, she becomes less of an Otacon-clone and more of a callous monster; it makes you wonder exactly how much truth there BaseBreaker, as she is either RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap by her tapes and true role in the story adding a lot of nuance to Coldman's comments regarding her character, or comes off even worse due to her betrayal of MSF and attempting to frame them by launching a nuke at the US. There's also the fact that she throws the player on a wild goose chase every time she frees Zadornov]]. ** Chico is not particularly popular due to getting captured, selling his plagiarism teammates out and exactly ''how skilled'' being seen as little more than an annoying TagalongKid. ** Huey is, given Skull Face's team are able to complete their Metal Gear ''without him'']].Emmerich, a [[GenerationXerox poor man]]'s Otacon. Whereas Otacon's considerable angst made him TheWoobie, in Huey's case, while he does have some legitimate grievances, many players just see him as selfish and {{Wangst}}y instead. Mind you, this is all before VideoGame/MetalGearSolidVThePhantomPain.

* EnsembleDarkhorse: One of the early game powerful soldiers you recruit in the game is named Alligator. He quickly became ''the'' MSF member. %%* FauxSymbolism: [[spoiler: The Mammal Pod is full of butterflies, which become the pale petals of Rokovoj Bereg. The final butterfly becomes a peace symbol upon contact with water! Hideo Kojima is a genius, stop looking confused!]] * FunnyAneurysmMoment: ** Remember that little music video where Paz sings her theme song on top of Mother Base? [[spoiler: It's the exact same area where you fight her... with the song as the background music.]] ** The Tactical Espionage Operations trailer has Kazuhira Miller explaining to Big Boss about their potential future role in the economy, as well as Big Boss explaining that they probably shouldn't have gotten involved in the first place because people are going to get rid of him. It becomes a heck of a lot more harsh after beating the game, as this was actually part of the second ending, [[spoiler:a few hours after defeating Paz, where Miller ends up admitting to his involvement in Cipher's scheme.]] ** In a briefing file about Ruinas de Xochiquetzal, Paz mentions after Big Boss mentions he'd show respect to the temple only if the mood strikes him that he has no one to blame but himself if Xochiquetzal strikes him down for that defiance. [[spoiler:That line becomes a lot less funny when one of the lines that Paz states during her fight against Big Boss is "You have no one to blame but yourself!" when firing ZEKE's railgun at Snake.]] ** Miller's English voice actor is British-born Robin Atkin Downes, which is ironic when you take into account of the fact that [[spoiler: [[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid about 31 years later]], British-raised Liquid Snake does pose as Master Miller.]]

** After the remastered editions were released, they went on to out-sell the original PSP version and was widely acclaimed. Worth noting is that Metal Gear Solid V is a direct sequel to Peace Walker, and "Ground Zeroes" picks up more or less directly after it.

** Holding up enemy soldiers causes them to ''permanently'' lie down on the ground even if the player character walks away for some time. This tactic is especially useful because for some reason the guards will never tell held up comrades to get up.

* [[spoiler: Paz - who we later learn is doing her utmost to fight everything she feels for Big Boss and MSF, turns on you in the finale with a mocking, heartbreaking ''"Say peace!"'' that goes against everything about her character prior to this]].

** Some fans of the series were divided over the boss fights. Some saw the need to procure ammo by calling it in as a mechanic that added tension, others found it [[ScrappyMechanic just wasted time]]. This was especially true when fighting bosses in single player, where there would never be enough ammunition in the field for you to win the battle. *** Additionally, the bosses were all armored vehicles or AI, rather than single humans with superpowers. It does provide the game with a more serious tone, but not everyone liked this detraction from the rest of the series.

** If you wonder exactly what makes this part so hard, the speed you are expected to press the button is so fast that even you somehow get past it, your finger will be strained for at least a week from pressing the button so fast. And even worst, the presses are programmed so fast that even ''turbo controllers can't even keep up''.
